Event Report

Please check your results carefully for spelling/club/age group/correct timing and score, and let us know asap of any errors. If your score is not what you were expecting, and you don't feature in the wrong-answers list, one of us has made a mistake.

Don't forget that if you can't make a particular event, you can get the map and questions from Grahame , and run by yourself before or after the day, and have your score included.

Marker's Comments

Lots of excitement on a wild and windy night - David Morris tried to break my spreadsheet by going negative; Dave Riley managed to lose his answer sheet and hence couldn't register a score; a couple of very impressive results from debutants; getting big scores was tricky, and several people didn't take sufficient account of the penalty rate.

Control #49 was clearly not precise enough, and both of the popular answers have been accepted.

Reserving a map (and food)

Please email Grahame Crawshaw by 23:59 on Sunday 8th November indicating the number of maps required and (if you’d like to eat) whether you would like to order a chilli (see below).

Additional information from the organiser/planner:

There is also an entrance to the car park from Flash Lane. The car park has some 48 marked bays, some of which will be in use by regulars. If the car park is full, it is not feasible to park on Bollington Road or Flash Lane. Instead please continue eastwards towards Bollington town centre and take the first right down Princess Drive, parking on-street where you can without blocking entrances.

Registration will be in the conservatory at the rear of the pub (next to the car park) which we have reserved for the evening. For reasons of road safety, the Start/Finish will be on the opposite side of Bollington Road from the pub, on the grass verge. Please cross the road with care.

Terrain; and equipment advice

The road and footpath network of Bollington takes up about a third of the mapped area, while the remainder features: the Middlewood Way, a canal towpath, unlit rural roads and paths, and some significant contours including Kerridge, with White Nancy at its northern end.

Some slopes and steps are steep and potentially slippery.

Many people opting for 40 or 60 minutes will be able to complete their run without venturing far outside the urban area.

For all others, the Organiser (Ian Gilliver) strongly recommends the use of shoes with grip (e.g. trail shoes), and the carrying of a back-up light and a whistle (or a mobile phone ) so that in case of emergency it will be possible to summon help.


In addition to the standard NSL control symbols, two controls refer to Bollington Nostalgia Walk footpath signs. The clue will say: “Nostalgia: Bee”. You will be required to give the name of the bee!


We have been offered a discounted price of £6 for a standard portion of chilli con carne with rice, cheddar, sour cream and a crisp tortilla. 

Alternatively you can order from the menu on the night.

The landlord needs to know by Monday 9 November how many chilli dishes we will need so that he can order extra supplies in time for our event.
